I have been using Google Drive for several years. At this moment, I have a very robust folder structure there, with many files of various types, altogether more than 13 GB. Now I need to search my Drive for all .gdoc and .gsheet files. With so many files on my Drive, it is almost impossible to do it manually. I know how to search Google Drive for all "text documents" (or for all "spreadsheets") but this gives me also all .docx, .odt, .txt and so on (.xlsx, .ods and so on) files. This is not what I want, I need to filter only .gdoc and .gsheet files.
After some searching, I found out why app:"Google Docs" did not work for me.
You seem to have to type exactly the words it is translates to in your language. I wish to have Google in English, but since I live in the Netherlands, it automatically chooses Dutch as language.
So instead of searching for app:"Google Docs", I have to search for app:"Google Documenten" and then it finds everything.
Then you type app:"Google 'thing in your native language you want'" So for example:
- app:"Google Documenten"
- app:"Google Presentaties"
- app:"Google Spreadsheets"
